Computers will be able to improve their own source codes and hardware in ways we puny humans could never conceive.

We figured that we could learn a thing or two from Facebook, so we reached out to Chuck Rossi, Facebook’s first release engineer and the head of their release engineering team. He generously gave us an hour of his time, offering insights into how Facebook releases software, as well as specific improvements we could make to our existing practice. This post describes several highlights of that conversation. What’s so good about Facebook release engineering? The core capability my company wants to reproduce is Facebook’s ability to release its frontend web UI on demand, invisibly and with high levels of control and quality.

Hudson Continuous Integration Prediction: Anchor Text is Dying...And Will Be Replaced by Co-citation - Whiteboard Friday The classic ranking signals: links, authority, keywords, and anchor text - have long remained dominant in Google's search rankings.

"Howdy, SEOmoz fans, and welcome to a second beardless edition of Whiteboard Friday. I apologize.

IP Multimedia Subsystem The IP Multimedia Subsystem or IP Multimedia Core Network Subsystem (IMS) is an architectural framework for delivering IP multimedia services. It was originally designed by the wireless standards body 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), as a part of the vision for evolving mobile networks beyond GSM. Its original formulation (3GPP Rel-5) represented an approach to delivering "Internet services" over GPRS. This vision was later updated by 3GPP, 3GPP2 and ETSI TISPAN by requiring support of networks other than GPRS, such as Wireless LAN, CDMA2000 and fixed lines.
